My PS2 will play only some DVD movies fine. It does the same with PS2 games. Seems like they have removed something that the older, larger PS2s had that allowed them to read DVDs more deeply and play...

Hi there Mike,

The only possible reason for your problem, since your slimline ps2 is STILL reading them (but just a little slow sometimes), is because the lens could hardly read your discs due to dust build up. Try cleaning it using a disc cleaner and letting it spin for like 30 seconds. If this does not fix the issue, then you may have to MANUALLY clean the lens. Open the cover and once you see the lens, get a clean swab or qtip and damp it in an alcohol and gently wipe the lens in a circular manner. Then let it dry and try to play those discs again.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

Please.. help me... my ps2 slimine is comepletely ruined..

Since you "smashed" which made things much worse (been there, done that). It was probrably fixable but now that it scratches I can only assume that the lens (laser) is scratched and damaged "beyond repair". The only suggestion I have, if you really want to fix it is to replace the lens and probrably the disc tray too. Fot the trouble it's worth too fix and the fact that there is no guarantee that it will even work after you fix it, your best bet is too buy a new one or at least a refurbished one.

Game not working

okay, maybe the game is not compatible with the ps2, for eg if ur in europe they make the ps2's PAL compatible, if you're in USA they make em NTSC. other probs might be that clicking noise, doesnt sound too promising!! i dunno but dont get angry and smash the ps2 on the top, that wont help at all!! (like i did ^^)

Slimline powers on disc spins but no picture

sometimes its hard to start tv-games (ps2, gamecube) since you have to put it on 'video', and other stuff.  Depending on your tv you might have 'input 1,2, and 3' instead of 'video'. just keep changing settings, and if you have your 'tri-cable' into a vcr try pressing the vcr power button.
